This is a fantastic opportunity to teach in a well led, collaborative and supportive humanities faculty. Little Ilford is a friendly, inclusive and oversubscribed school in Newham making a big difference to the lives of our diverse student community. We have a strong reputation and high expectations of both students and staff and consider this to be an exciting place to work and develop, where creativity and innovation are nurtured. Our targets for attainment and progress are challenging, but staff have the focus and determination to realise them for the benefit of our students. We really know our students, and focus on them as individuals. Pastoral systems are strong and we value a curriculum offer and activities that educate the whole child.
As a school we are absolutely committed to ensuring that all staff have access to comprehensive professional development and have developed an exciting and impactful programme designed to offer training that makes a real difference. We value a good home/work balance and do what we can to support our staff in this respect.
We are looking for a committed, enthusiastic and high calibre geography teacher who has exceptional subject knowledge to join our energetic and dynamic team. You will work in the humanities team, ensuring that the quality of teaching and learning in your lessons is outstanding, keeping up to date with curricular developments and helping to ensure that geography is popular and successful within the option choices. You will engage and inspire our students in the subject, allowing them to make outstanding progress and achieve strong results, and you will contribute to general humanities teaching as required.
We will support and develop you to become an outstanding teacher and provide working partnership opportunities with other schools and departments. We are an aspirational, reflective and creative learning community where all adults are learners who take risks in order to achieve excellent results for our students.
